Practice Thanksgiving 2022

On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie were all part of the day’s lessons at The Birchtree Center’s day school. Why? Because many students with autism need extra preparation for the holiday.

Students and instructors teamed up to prepare side dishes and craft centerpieces. On Wednesday everyone gathered for a typical Thanksgiving meal. It was a delicious way to prepare students for holiday celebrations with their families.
